    Peter Quill is indeed a man from the 80's… just like a lot of us are

    Vintage He-Man and Man-at-Arms figures show up in Netflix' season 2 of Stranger Things. There may be others but that is all I noticed my first time through.
    Coming straight out of Preternia, tribal chieftess and the original WARRIOR GODDESS, SHARELLLA!!!

    Sharella needs her day in Classics. She is the only remaining vintage POG character that needs a figure.
    Support Sharella for Collectors Choice!

    My top 5 wants for MOTUC: Sharella, Hunga the Harpy, Sagitar, Snake Goddess & Red Beast

    Inspired by Noelle Stevenson and the folks over at the Progressive of Power podcast, I was poking around at possible He-man related songs, and behold!

    "Let's Go Slaughter He-Man (I Wanna Be The Beast-Man In The Masters Of The Universe)" (2017) by Finnish metal band Lordi is sung from the perspective of one of the Evil Warriors.

    "Skeletor" (2016) by rapper Young Money, in which he sings "...my game is He-man stronger / doing all my victims like they Skeletor," a refrain which repeats in various iterations throughout.

    "Skeletor" (2016) from the album "Sacrifice" by French-Canadian rapper Souldia. I can't understand spoken French, so maybe someone else can work that one out for us.

    "Master of the Universe" (2011) from the album "Masters of the Universe" by Let's Get It, the second verse and chorus proclaim:

    I'll keep my secret safe inside
    (They'll never know, they'll never know)
    Keep the evil force out of my mind
    (They'll never know, they'll never know)
    From here until eternia
    This Grayskull passion's burning up
    Shed blood and sweat and tears
    Heart of a Battle Cat, I know they can't handle that
    By the power, let me shine

    CHORUS:
    Can't stop me now, feeling like the Master of the Universe
    It's going down, gotta make this one better than before
    Why wait for your time, gotta make this one mine
    You got me now looking like the Master of the Universe

    ...so these are on my spotify now!
    "We must always value life, even the life of one who opposes us." - He-man, The Power of the Evil Horde (Mattel 1985).
    "...I believe in the sanctity of all life." - He-man, "The Arena" (Filmation 1984)

    I haven't heard of any of these! Very cool.

    And was there a separate thread mentioning He-Man's cameo in "Ready Player One"?

    My guess is it's from the Hordak dress-up/costume set.

    Homestar Runner pulled a reference in one of their annual "dress everyone up in pop culture costumes for Halloween" episodes, this one's the 2014 one, "I Killed Pom Pom".

    He-Man references in pop culture

    Name some movies or TV shows that reference MOTU and all that?

    The Gate (1987): Has one of the kids wearing a He-Man t-shirt.
    Silent Night Deadly Night: You can see a kite of Cringer with He-Man on top of him while the killer Santa is gonna murder that woman.
    The Princess Bride: Grizzlor action figure can be seen in Fred Savage's room.
    Ghostbusters II: Some of the kids at the birthday disappointed it was Ghostbusters than He-Man.
    Prancer: One of the boys who sat on Santa's Lap asked for a Skeletor action figure.
    The Real Ghostbusters Station Identification episode has a He-Man parody called Power Guy
    House (1985): The little boy has a Buzz-Off action figure.
    The Simpsons: The Front episode has Strondarr Master of Akham being a he-man parody.

    MOTU pops up on Stranger Things at least twice; there's one time one of the characters (Eleven, I think?) turns on the TV and there's the familiar "I have the Power!" going on. And in another episode, Lucas' sister is messing with Lucas' figures.

    Interesting how it's the vintage toy rather than NA one.
    Yup since Mattel worked on that

    I watched the MST3K version of the awful 1988 ET rip-off/95 minute Skittles/Mcdonalds/Coca-Cola cinematic commercial Mac and Me and briefly in Sears you can see some MOTU and POP stuff.
